– Summit1g hits top spot with 75million hours watched

– End of Mixer leaves door open to Ninja & Shroud

– No Myth or Pokimane in top 10 list

2020 has been a strange year — but Twitch streamers have had it stranger than most. The global lockdown has driven huge spikes across the streaming world as these entertainers have been a lifeline for millions of fans looking for company and distraction from the safety of their home.

This led to 101% year-on-year viewership growth in April.

The award-winning esports bookmakers at Unikrn have created a list of the top 10 most watched twitch streamers of 2020 so far.

This comes with this week’s news that Microsoft has ditched their own streaming service, Mixer, leaving the door open for some of the biggest streamers on the planet to return to Twitch.

Tyler Blevins, known on Twitch as Ninja, accrued 14 million followers on Twitch before leaving to join Mixer in October last year, but the Fortnite gamer joined other big names such as Michael “Shroud” Grzesiek and Cory “King Gothalion” Michael as free agents with Mixer’s collapse.

So, they too could make this list before the end of the year!

Anzu, the world-leading provider of in-game advertising, has expanded its cooperation with independent game developer Axis Games.

After successfully integrating the ad platform solution into Axis Game’s mobile version of Axis Football League, the expansion will bring Anzu’s blended in-game ads to a growing set of Axis Football gaming titles on PC and console devices.

The exclusive deal is happening at an opportune time for Axis Games as the company plans to start an esports league this year and stream its matches during the upcoming NFL season, which aligns well with the player database, 95% of whom are US-based. The blended in-game banner and video ads will assist with transforming the digital gaming environment into one that more closely replicates the atmosphere of real-world NFL games.

“We are extremely excited about our partnership with Anzu. Their ability to supply relevant and dynamic ad content will add a large amount of life, immersion, and realism to the stadiums in our game,” Danny Jugan, President of Axis Games, said.

“We are delighted to expand our relationship with Axis Games, and it’s coming at a great time as they prepare to launch and stream their esports league. As game developers, they continue to show their creativity through innovative game features, and this next step – adding in-game ads to their PC and console football games – will deliver a better user experience for players and those watching the live stream,” Itamar Benedy, Co-Founder and CEO of Anzu, said.
